Solventas Surgical Alliance
Solventas is a U.S.-based nonprofit that builds local surgical access and capacity, creates self-sustaining surgical practices and improves access to lifesaving procedures in low and lower-middle income countries.
Like traditional nonprofits, Solventas sponsors medical service projects and accepts donations, both financial and of medical supplies and equipment.Solventas sets itself apart, though, by working only in support of local surgeons who are struggling to earn a living in their home country, or who are currently practicing abroad but wish to return. They do so primarily by providing capital and access to surgical and practice management expertise.

Emma’s Angels Program
As an integral part of One5’s purpose, Emma’s Angels is part of a larger picture we are creating in a world hungry for love, acceptance and human interaction. By committing to consistent weekly team visitation with the elderly, they are helping to reduce isolation and loneliness and give them hope and the nurturing they deserve.
Volunteers visit with the elderly once a week, send weekly notes, occasionally drop off favorite foods or treats (especially around the holidays) and a weekly phone call so they know they are cared for. Emma’s Angels constantly seek to identify additional elderly in need.
Studies show that 18% of seniors live alone and 43% report feeling lonely on a regular basis. Studies also show that the elderly that report feeling lonely have a 45% increase in their risk of death/ Isolated elders also have a 59% greater risk of mental and physical decline than their more social counterparts.
